I made the paper! The Riverwest Currents in Milwaukee, Wisconsin just published an article about me and my work. I will be showing at The Terry McCormick Gallery this month during Gallery Day! Read all about it here:

The ridiculously tight grad school schedule and the three shows I am getting ready for has led me to photos. I have the time to snap a few photos here and there while I'm going to and fro. Here's more of Baltimore, through my eyes.

(photos were taken around MICA, the Great Blacks in Wax Museum, and the American Visionary Art Museum, within the last week)

and here's me!

Alley Paintings

I took some photos in the new alley behind my new apartment. I was intrigued by the additions and subtractions made to the bricks. I could literally see back through time, and through the many layers of paint, and I likened it to the way I approach a painting on paper. With watercolors, a joy, or a curse of the medium is that one can see all the layers that were made before, because they are so translucent. It's more about how things fit in the end, the colors, patterns and shapes, rather than a single layer that was made on top...

New art exhibition coming up at The Blue Nile in Harrisonburg, Virginia! Wes Way and I will be showing our work downstairs, starting at 6pm on July 9. The show continues through August. I will be updating this blog before then, with the work I pick to show, etc. I just wanted to put this pretty flier up right away.
